We're back from a busy weekend at the NEC Classic Motor Show 2023, with some photos of a few of the incredible vehicles on display at the event. 

Shaun, Chet, "Workshop Mark", and Nick joined a few members of the Just Kampers Insurance team at the Birmingham NEC over the weekend for the annual Classic Motor Show - a celebration of classic vehicles of all sorts which takes over the National Exhibition Centre for three days each year. 

Thanks for coming to say hi!

We wanted to say a huge Thank You to everyone who dropped by to say hi over the weekend, it was great to be able to speak to so many people face to face, especially those of you we regularly speak to over the phone! 

Everyone we spoke to was really friendly, enthusiastic, and excited to be part of what felt like an incredibly vibrant and energised classic car scene. We got to chat to hundreds of people about their project vehicles, what they're working on, what their plans are, and why they fell in love with classic Volkswagens. 

We also got some really great feedback about Just Kampers as a whole, including a lot of people who were really glad that they can get in touch with the JK Team by phone - something of a recurring theme with a lot of the people we spoke to!

This was probably the busiest we've seen the Classic Motor Show for a long time, and as always there was a massive amount of classic Volkswagens on display, including Jack the Giant Slayer, the 1956 VW Oval Beetle which we drove as part of the infamous Mille Miglia back in 2017. 

We also had a complete Beetle floorpan in display, with featured loads of 'cutaway' details to show off the inner workings of the famous VW Beetle. These models were used in technical colleges to teach students, and draw a massive crowd over the weekend, with people keen to take a look at it and speak to the JK Team.
